Smid to Calgary for 2 Prospects - Bryz signs with EDM

Postby Kovy27 on Fri Nov 08, 2013 7:53 pm

#Oilers acquire G Laurent Brossoit and C Roman Horak from @NHLFlames in exchange for D Ladislav Smid and G Olivier Roy.


Looks like they are freeing up some room to sign Bryzgalov. Also, probably not the only trade for them.

Re: Bryzgalov -- EDM looked at him a few weeks ago, didn't like his salary ask. Maybe things have changed for now.

I kinda like Ladislav Smid. Horak is nothing special. Kind of like Jeffrey...he belongs in the NHL but it's not quite clear why. Brossoit is a decent goalie prospect, basically just starting over the development curve of Olivier-Bellavance Roy except with another "random" outcome...as Roy hasn't been doing so hot.

Flames are without Giordano for weeks, and Smid fills in the defense and shot blocking side of it. Not sure how great of a fit he'll be in Calgary's more up-tempo style...but we'll see.

Rachel M. ‏@REMBostonsports 34s The Oilers have reached a verbal agreement, one year deal with goalie Ilya Bryzgalov.


Does this let the fly boys off the hook with his salary? :(

It does not, Penny. He'll receive two paychecks. A big one from the Flyers and a not so big (but will still be surprisingly big according to one source) from Edmonton.

not sure how getting rid of Smid to open up cap room for bryz can be considered a win for Edmonton... but then again, they needed to change something up.

Edmonton might be the one team in the league where bryzgalov will definitely be an upgrade.

May not even matter since they got rid of arguably their 2nd best Dman

Wouldn't they have gotten more for Smid at last year's trade deadline?

Not much magical about Horak. Brossoit has decent upside. Like a less talented version of Tristan Jarry.

My notes on Horak, not that most people here would have any reason to know who this is...just like Flames fans wouldn't know who Dustin Jeffrey was if he bit them in the face...

Roman Horak (C) - Detailed-oriented, two-way centerman that plays a safe style. He's eager to show off his attention to detail, readily covering for pinching defensemen, jumping in and offering good support or being a diligent backchecker. He's got a very good first step and fine speed. It has room for improvement still. He doesn't seem to have a lot of confidence with the puck and doesn't like it on his stick very long. Hasn't shown many great demonstrations of skill or finesse at the NHL level, but it might be buried in there somewhere. Shows a good head for the game, has played a North American style game since he's been in the league. Needs to get stronger and gain some confidence if he wants to tap some of that untapped offensive upside. Otherwise, he'll be more of a role player at this level.

Likely potential: Third line, two-way centerman

My thoughts exactly.

And why did they need cap space? They've got $6m+... Unless they've got some huge deal in the works for Brian Campbell... or Tyler Myers?

I'm confused by the Bryz hate...unless folks weren't seeing how bad the Flyers defense was.
Heck, just turn on their next game and see how bad it still is.
